Obesity: World’s #1 Health Problem

Obesity on the beach

The obesity plague is no illusion

Obesity is costing Americans as much as $147 billion—and countless lives—each year. Incredibly, two thirds of American adults are either overweight or obese, and childhood obesity rates are triple what they were only a generation ago.

In fact, the obesity crisis has placed a crushing burden on our health care system and now has many experts expressing their belief that today’s generation of children will be the first to have shorter life expectancy than their parents. And the problem isn’t just America’s. The same troubling rates are being seen in other areas of North America, Europe and other developed countries. It truly is a worldwide epidemic. (CNBC, 2010)

These and other numbers that scientists and health experts are citing are incredibly alarming. Most concerning is many experts feel obesity is approaching heart disease as the number one killer disease in America.

Covering the exploding obesity epidemic, a recent CNBC report wondered, “Why in a society obsessed with being thin, it has never been easier to be fat.”

It’s simple—obesity is killing us.

So what’s the answer to the obesity epidemic? Healthy dark chocolate. It’s not just a change in diet, but a full change in lifestyle and diet and exercise neighborhood by neighborhood. Person to person. And when people begin to get the right amounts of antioxidants, however they get it (whether it’s dark chocolate antioxidants or other high ORAC foods) then we will begin the answer to the obesity epidemic.
